The highest point in Tijuca Forest has the advantage of a car park three quarters of the way up. The sheer scale of Zona Norte and the Baixada Fluminense can be felt from up here and there is a priviledged view of Macarana Stadium.

This was a last minute decision and we were relying on good communication so that we were picked up as planned. We were picked up on time at the pre-arranged location. Our driver was very informative about things of interest we passed as we drove to the national park. The hike was not too difficult. Even though it was a hot, sunny afternoon, much of the walk was beneath the shade of the forest. The panoramic views of Rio at the top were well worth the effort.
